The 3rd Annual Haitian Caribbean Book Fair is happening on May 24, 2015 at the Little Haiti Cultural Complex. Locals are invited to come enjoy a free day of Haitian and Caribbean historians, authors, dancers, artists, and food.

Established in 1985, Sosyete Koukouy, Inc. (Sos*ye*te Koo*Kouy), is dedicated to preserving Haitian culture in the United States through education and arts and cultural presentations. Its mission is to preserve, perpetuate and present, Haitian cultural performances and exhibitions, to Creole and non-Creole speaking audiences. In support of that mission, Sosyete Koukouy presents and produces cultural programs that: increase awareness of Haitian people, its language, rituals and traditions, and its deep roots in the African continent; foster greater understanding between Hatian people and people of other diverse ethnicities, cultures and heritage; and foster respect for the arts and artists of Haiti and the Americas by raising awareness of their historical and artistic contributions to the national and international cultural landscape.
